Tomás de Torquemada by Chris Weston

Having started drawing for 2000ad in 1988 doing Future Shock and an occasional Dredd, Chris Weston really got peoples attention when he teamed up with, John Smith, this was where his artwork developed a much weirder style. There  teamwork culminated in the ten-part Indigo Prime story, Killing Time, which has gone done as one of the all time best stories in 2000ad. After this he worked with  Mark Millar for the much underrated Canon Fodder story. From this partnership, Mark went on to champion his artwork and introduced him to the editors at D.C. 

Chris has since gone on to work on The Invisibles, Starman, JLA Lucifer and The Authority. He has also worked on the film Book of Eli where he provided the story-boards for the film.

Thanks to Eric  Moore for e-mailing this to me.
